Houma Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 10 photos
Houma is a very nice mid-sized city of about 34,000 (up 5% since 2000) located at the intersection of Louisiana Highway 24 and several other Louisiana Highways in Terrebonne Parish in Southern Louisiana. The area was long the home of the Houma Nation for whom the city is named. Houma was established in 1834 and incorporated in 1848. Houma was part of the plantation era and is steeped in Cajun traditions. A number of films were shot fully or partially in the Houma area to include: The Apostle; Crazy in Alabama; Fight Club, A Lesson Before Dying; The Skeleton Key, and The Butler. I met some very friendly, genuine people here and loved my time in Houma. Houma is the parish seat of Terrebonne Parish which was founded in 1822.
Houma has a few excellent historic districts with a number of buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. There are several plantation homes in the area like Southdown Plantation. There is one district and 9 individual locations in Houma listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Houma also has several nice museums and cultural centers worth a visit.
